contend and martin luther king. now after another horrendous day in baton rouge, we are feeling a sense of helplessness and loss of confidence in our institutions, as we did then. they seem impotent. as this convention unfolds, there will be a lot of talk and no instant solutions will be found here nor will there be any such thing as next week's democratic garthering. these have been a long time b building and won't be solved the next two weeks. democrats find ways to work together to solve our problems or they can continue to work against each other and the one thing we do know is, so far, that approach hasn't worked very well. >> insights from bob schieffer.
